It is not a smart idea at all to put them together


well if u want your pet to have a friend it is a good idea ...yes sometime male guinea pigs will fight but not very often....they r more likely to fight if they are the same age by adding a new younger guinea pig with an older one is the best way and best chance they will make the best of friends ...just always make sure...there is always plenty of food and fresh water, if u need to add 2 bowls of food to the cage or hutch then do so ....male guinea pigs also seem to need more space then females so a nice big hutch or cage xxx

Do guinea pig prefer to be on their own or with another guinea pig?

I disagree and know that Guinea pigs are very social animals and need the company of other guinea pigs. Social animals that live on their own get stressed and lonely. Litter-mates of the same sex should live together, as this minimises the chance of their fighting. Males and females shouldn't be kept together, as they will breed and it can be difficult to find homes for the young.

Is it a bad idea to put a one year old male guinea pig with another young 3-5 months old male guinea pig together in the same cage'?

yes because if you do then the s-5 month old guinea-pig could die because it is not within its age group and the older guinea-pig will pick on the smaller guinea-pig and the older guinea-pig will take advantage of the smaller guinea-pig cause i did that and my younger guinea-pig died a week later so don't do it cause you may be a murderur it not a bad idea at all .... i have 6 guinea pigs and the males r very happy with having a male friend in with them .... The person at the top is young and unsure, yes you can as long as there is enough space for the guinea pigs to have their own territory. Look up CC cages.
